Mets righthander Dillon Gee had to have emergency blood clot surgery in July after doctors discovered artery damage there.
Fortunately for Gee, the surgery went well and he now has more good news from doctors. Adam Rubin:
New York Mets right-hander Dillon Gee received a clean bill of health after having an angiogram in St. Louis on Friday.
The test was administered by the same doctor who performed surgery to repair a damaged artery in Gee’s pitching shoulder six weeks earlier.
“The visit in St. Louis couldn’t have gone better,” Gee told ESPNNewYork.com. “He said I look great.”
(Here’s where you say “You look MAH-velous” in a Billy Crystal voice.)
Rubin’s article says that Gee will begin throwing soon, but he doesn’t expect to return this season. He should be ready to go once 2013 spring training begins.
